2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 500 ml bottle.
Aroma is sweet, green apples with a medium light tannin note. Light red apple notes, but this is mostly green.
Pours a very clear, very pale yellow color with a faint, thin, white head that immediately disappears. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is moderately sweet, but with a fairly dry finish. Medium light green apple notes with some light red apple and tannins. Hints of alcohol in the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty bland and somewhat boring cider, but it should work fine for a pork chop brine. Flavor is fairly muted with balanced sweetness and apple notes. A bit too candy-like for my preferences.

This is a bit dryer than most but is still vaguely in the soda pop range of cidres. This is perfectly clear and tastes like less sweet apple juice w/ a pretty nice floral note and some Smarties candy. It’s a bit watery on the palate but I prefer that to too sweet and sticky so based on that I am willing to say that this is not revolting.

Can @ home. Thanks, Jake. Clear straw color with short lived white foam. There’s a nice apple and yeasty character to it. Slight white wine and champagne minerality. Good acidity, mild sweetness, and some fruit skins. Pretty dry and high carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

355ml can. Cider pour, bubblegummy yeast tones, apple, and spice in the aroma. Flavor is a semi-sweet kind of vinegary, rotten, not great imo.

seems like a session cider, but clocks in at 6%. Fairly standard in execution...very crisp, quite light, and equal parts sweet and tart.

Pours pale yellow, super-fizzy, with a head that’s instantly gone. Aroma is pleasant apple with maybe a touch of peach, and I immediately can tell that the taste will be sweet. Aaaannddd.... I was wrong. The flavor is exquisitely tart and raw, with the sharp bite of a ripe Granny Smith. That’s pretty much all I can think of as I sip this, although I can detect alcohol phenols creeping through from time to time. My stomach won’t allow me to session this because of its sour acidity, but I’d certainly enjoy one every now and again. ~~~~~~~ Single 12 oz. can in a mixed-six, Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL.
